Let's Fly Kualalumpur - Air Asia Travel Fair

K.L or Bangkok.?

Wikipedia says that both are the most populous cities of their respective nations. And If I am to believe my traveler friend, he claims that the population in these nations doesn't mean crowd or chaos or mind-numbing noise. For a traveler, this massive population means vibrant colors of life, obviously from a traveler's point of view.

The most difficult thing for a traveler to do is to make a choice. To choose between two exotic locations to travel to! To make one destination your choice and burying the other one into a safe corner of the heart. However, the choices must be made and that's the way of life.

If I were to make a choice between Bangkok and Kualalumpur , I would certainly choose Kualalumpur. Because it is a perfect blend of a changing world we live in. Ancient temples and historical trails that take us back in time. At the same time, the city of K.L. is blessed with some modern age engineering and tourism marvels that force you to visit this city time and again.

If I were to visit the city of K.L. I would certainly include the following attractions in my Must Visit list
The little vibrant Indian community of Brickfields (The Little India) that will make any Indian proud of the diversity of our great nation. India in Malaysia, minus the madness and chaos that sometimes gets on your nerves when you are in the actual India. Imagine, how cool is that!

You can take an Indian out of India but not India out of an Indian. Howsoever cliched it may sound, that's the way we Indians are designed. No matter how much we criticize out country in our country, when we are outside it, we always look to meet Madrasis' or Bangalis' or Pahadis' because that's what makes our trips memorable.

And that's why the Little India in K.L is a must visit.

The beautiful lime caves of the Batu Village overlooking the serene Batu River. And wouldn't it be awesome to meet the Lord Murugun in Malaysia? Blessing you before you step inside the caves.  I bet it would be!
The blue lights sparkling through the openings of the ancient lime caves would certainly give a feel of an Arabian adventurer risking his life to find a treasure trove.

A visit to the mysterious world of Islamic artists at the Modernist National Mosque taking you back in time rejuvenating your faith in religion as a unifying force and not a divisive one.

The Lake Gardens of Perdana. The Bukit Bintang. The Bird Gardens. An engineering marvel of 452 meters, lasting 88 storeys high; the Petronas Twin Towers.  The list is just endless. And they rightly say about the city of Kuala Lumpur; One visit is not enough.

And last but not the least, a visit to Kuala Lumpur is not complete if you don't taste the food here. The delicious sea food that brings foodies from across the world to K.L. Cheap electronics is another attraction ;)

The mind-boggling delicacies of the streets of KualaLumpur can always take care of your jet-lag and physical exhaustion. For instance, Nasi Lemak. Or maybe the Chettinad Banana Leaf recipe, or probably tasting the flavors of Nepal in Malaysia. And not to forget the seafood of K.L. You name it and they will serve it.

In case you are not fond of history, or walking, or roaming around in the streets, you can simply step inside any restaurant in K.L. and eat as much as you can. That's another specialty of Kuala Lumpur.

So what are you waiting for? 

And then there is the World's Best Online Travel Fair to help you out with getting cheap flights to land in the beautiful city of K.L. Statistics reveal that a huge number of Indians like to visit K.L., they are just sending you there with less burden on your pocket.
